Good to be home!

We made it home yesterday around 5:30 p.m. We had a wonderful crowd waiting for us at the airport -- the Spiers, the Freeds and Mrs. Johnson-Smith were there to greet us and the Ojemann family was recruited and they came in from somewhere. It feels great to be home, but we are all exhausted. Dominic woke up around 5:00 and asked "what time is it in Germany?" I told him that it was around 1:00 in the afternoon and he said that is probably why he couldn't sleep. (He started to wake up around 3:00 in the morning).

He has been feeling pretty good. He threw up when we landed both times yesterday. I was afraid that the side effects were kicking in, but he promised me it was just the landings. We had turbulence for over 2 hours before we landed in Dallas and I think the 1st officer was practicing his landings as well because it was a very rough one.

We took Grandpops (aka the dogsitter extraordinaire) to the airport today so he could return to his dogs and wife after 2 weeks. The dogs are sad to see him go since they know they won't get as many walks. We are extremely grateful to him for taking such good care of the girls and our home while we were gone. On a side note, his bag was delayed on his flight home and United gave him $150. Not bad.

Dominic is readjusting to being home. He says he feels good and that he thinks his eyes are working better. His hands seem much more relaxed. They are not fisted as much as they were. I am sure we are looking at every little thing, but we are hopeful we will see some changes soon. We will continue to keep everyone updated on the progress. He has his last week of summer to enjoy and then school starts on the 24th. Another busy time.


  1. Welcome home! I really wanted to meet you at the airport but we got delayed moving our son back to college. I'm glad Dominic is feeling fine and didn't have those pesky spinal headaches. I'll see you soon at school!
    Love, Fran
